In Orland Park, IL, the average year round temperature fluctuates from the low teens to the mid eighties, then it’s not unregular for temperature to drop well into the negatives or soar into the triple digits, then along with long, frigid winters in addition to lots of snow, my fantastic friend and I get humid summers in addition to frequent thunderstorms.
- It’s windy all year round.
I grew up in Orland Park in addition to still live there, however while the weather is a challenge, I savor the four distinct seasons, however there is always something up-to-date to look forward to. The overheated in addition to muggy summers are followed by cool fall conditions with the gorgeous color of the changing leaves. I get happy to pick apples, grapes, zucchinis in addition to cucumber. The winter time offers the opportunity to go skiing, sledding, snowmobiling in addition to snowboarding. While the frigid weather sometimes seems endless, eventually the daffodils, tulips in addition to robins show up in the Springtime, because of the weather extremes, it’s necessary to both heat in addition to cool my home. I have a forced air furnace in addition to central cooling system that circulate heated in addition to cooled air to the odd rooms by way of a duct system. Since the unit works just about non stop, energy bills are always a concern. It’s substantial to tightly seal the property to prevent waste in addition to minimize costs. I’ve caulked, weatherstripped in addition to insulated. I’ve updated windows in addition to exterior doors. I’ve managed to create a easily efficient thermal envelope! However, my efforts have also eliminated essential ventilation, but for the health of the air quality, it’s necessary to introduce fresh air into the home. I’ve now installed a heat salvagey ventilator that works to pull out the stale air in addition to update it with fresh.
